Yesterday Terry and I checked out what's called the Steampunk Festival being held at Renninger's in Mount Dora, FL
We arrived early and walked around for about an hour and a half before we had to leave.
It was really interesting to see the various folks walking around in unique costumes; checking out the wide variety of antiques being sold; and coming across unusual creations made using pieces of metal and glass. Even the music was unique.
While walking around, I came across a vendor selling old door knobs, knockers, locks, vintage keys, etc. I picked up a hand full of various size keys to have on hand for sketching.
Keys close to actual size.

Although I took several photos, I didn't get what I now wish I had showing more of the folks wearing costumes and other various attractions. We left before the real action started (which I believe was a show put on by several in costume). Oh well........maybe next time.
